    Pixhack flight controller

    We just managed to secure a batch of the Pixhack flight controllers. Check it out here:

    It's a cheaper, smaller and more refined version of the Pixhawk flight controller hardware. Fits perfectly into a DISCOVERY (PRO), you know, in case you want to do some chocolate delivery of your own

    yeah I will get some values, but basically the auto-tune works like a charm as well.

    Will usual accessories (e.g., telemetry, airspeed sensor, etc.) for the PixHawk work on it? I'm thinking of trying it out on a plane.

    yes. it's fully compatible, it even has the same ports with the same connectors. they just "jammed" it into a much tinier form factor, with excellent manufacturing quality

    That video looks pretty cool. Trappy was that all autonomous flight? I never tried Pixhawk or variations. Do you think it will perform well with the Endurance 6s setup?

    apparently the pixhawk / pixhack has some problems with the ESCs that we supply in the endurance kit. But if you use the T-Motor ESCs (or other 6S equivalents) it will surely perform like a charm. Pixhawk/pixhack is just an amazing platform, the performance of the drone is almost doubled in terms of max speed/range.

    Nice to see a smaller version of the APM platform, the original pixhawk is humongous. I went with a slightly more experimental route and got a raspberry 2 with a navio board(APM for Linux), which makes it possible to use video recognition software and other cool stuff on your plane/multirotor.

    Just when I finished watching the Video my interest gets smacked into the ground because of incompatibility ;(
    Care to go more in depth what the problem is and if you expect for this problem to be fixed at some point?

    I also imagine for some to be interested in the dimensions of the little bugger - Something to add to the TBS Product Page?

    Which T-Motor ESC Set would you recommend to use with the Endurance Kit? They appear to have 20A and 40A ESC's but nothing in the 30A Ballpark.
